Just as Windows is different from Mac OS X, so too are the phone environments that we use every day, both from a users standpoint, and from a developer’s standpoint. This series will take you through some of the differences with Project Manager, Peter!
Apple’s iOS apps are written in either native Objective-C, or the recently released Swift programming languages. It is possible to develop an iOS application in another language using third-party libraries, but using the native language of the platform allows for a more powerful, efficient, and extensive use of native elements of the OS.
Myriad will build iOS apps in their native languages, unless instructed otherwise. Our development environment is Xcode, and we aim towards working with the latest 2 full versions of iOS.
Google’s Android platform has their apps written in Java and C, using the Android Software Development Kit. Just as with iOS, there are third-party libraries that allow development in a different language, but utilizing the SDK’s resources at a native level is highly recommended.
Again, Myriad will build Android apps in their native languages, unless instructed otherwise. Our development environment is Android Studio, and we aim towards building towards the the latest 80% of marketshare.
